ENB - Region 6 Notices 7/27/2011

Negative Declaration

Lewis County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Marks Farm Mined Land Reclamation Permit Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 5.0 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 111.2 acre parcel owned by Marks Farm. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Plainfield fine sandy loam and Plainfield and Hartland fine sandy loam soil types on the site. Mining is proposed to take place below the seasonal high water table. Excavation will be done by track hoe and then loaded onto dump trucks. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 120,000 cubic yards sand over the estimated 10 -15 year operational life of the mine. Material will generally be mined as unprocessed run-of-bank sand and no processing of material is planned. Final reclamation will restore the site to hay and corn crop production. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges and seeded with a hay field mix or planted to corn. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 5.0 (LOM) acres. The project is located 350 feet east-southeast of Tiffany Road, approximately 5,500 feet southwest of NYS Route 12, in the Town of Martinsburg, New York.

Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to a 98 ± acre uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land and ponds.
